Day 4: I am thankful for modern appliances that help me improve my kitchen skills but most importantly allow me to make healthy food for my little ones. I've mentioned before how a lot (if not most) Italian moms make their own baby food and I have very happily hopped on that wagon. I never … Continue reading 30 days of Thanks: Day 4
Sundays at our house are about one thing: RELAXING! This past Sunday we decided to have a relaxing lunch on the balcony. Unfortunately, our flowers all died this summer but we still have a great view! I love days/meals like this. Simple. Relaxing. Delicious. It really doesn't get much better than this!
Anytime I meet up with a Torinese, I always ask the same question. What is your favorite restaurant? The answers vary but lately, I'm getting the same one over and over again.

I never actually noticed baby food until V was nearing 4 months. Since I was nursing her, I only worried about diapers, wipes and … Continue reading Baby food… Italian Style

The best way to celebrate in true Texas style would be to have some seriously good barbecue. I had planned to make a really … Continue reading Texas Independence Day
Today's Sunday meal was a quick and easy favorite. Since we had a big day ahead, we wanted something that didn't take a lot of prep work. So we settled for: "Da Bomb" Sandwiches. I remember the first time I made these for Carlo he liked them so much that he just kept calling them … Continue reading The Sunday Meal
... that wasn't on Sunday. We had a last minute invitation to have Sunday lunch with one of Carlo's aunts so had to move our meal to today. Unfortunately, the weather was absolutely yucky considering that Sunday was really nice so, our menu seems a little off.... but it was still very tasty! Saturday night, … Continue reading The Sunday Meal
Since we decided to go out for dinner on Saturday night, SOMEONE (Carlo) wanted to have a "light" meal on Sunday. So, did we have salad? white rice or white pasta? NO... Pizza & potato chips... Can someone please tell me what is "light" about that?!?!
